Jupiter stations retrograde at 23 deg Scorpio on March 8th, 11:45 PM EST.
As the planet of big expansion moves in reverse, the deep, essential growth that's taken place since Jupiter entered Scorpio on October 10th, 2017 will either pause or intensify in one area.
Taboo issues that Jupiter has brought to the surface may be put on hold, and you'll have the space to recalibrate your perspective. Jupiter in Scorpio can be overwhelming - you may have been drowning in the intensity of an immersive situation, but now Jupiter Rx will encourage you to come up for air.
In some cases, you may return to what was first exposed - questions will emerge about the truth and wisdom of what you've learned. Yes, it was raw and pushed the boundaries, but what does that mean, exactly? What happens after you hit the bottom of the rabbit hole? You can get sucked into the richness of brutal exploration and the sharing of dark things, but eventually you have to acknowledge an end. Jupiter Rx's pause can be a sign that this is as far as you're meant to go (for now). Stop, breath and put the knowledge you've gained into context.
If the growth of something pauses, know that it's time to take stock of what's come into your life since Jupiter first entered Scorpio. Use this energy to refine what Jupiter's brought you - Scorpio is about absolute truth and power that's based on inner resources. Purge anything that's not totally honest, essential for your evolution and honourably powerful (that means no manipulation or destructive obsessions).
However, if there is an intensification, it will happen in one area and that will be your cue to look even deeper and concentrate on that thing. Perhaps you'll be examining a death, a profound question of faith or optimism in the darkest place. Sometimes Jupiter's growth means details are overlooked; Jupiter Rx is the time to catch what you missed by peeling back yet another layer of shadow.
Jupiter's retrograde will cover 23 to 13 degrees Scorpio, so anything at these degrees of the Fixed or Water signs will be reviewed, paused or intensified. Note that Mars stationed direct at 23 deg Scorpio on June 29th, 2016. This was part of Mars' Rx which covered Sagittarius and Scorpio, and the Scorpio portion was about getting at the true motivations behind action, anger and passion. Mars direct was about moving forward with those truths, and acting from a place of conscious intent (rather than reacting automatically). This Jupiter Rx may refer back to what Mars direct triggered - reevaluated growth will be based on actions/anger/sexuality from the past.
Jupiter will station direct on July 10th, 2018.
